Green Acorn Promotional Partnership

Civic House

Additional support has been awarded to the Green Acorn Certification Program, a Fall 2009 Green Fund project, to raise awareness about the initiative through an expanded marketing and advertising campaign. A Wharton Management 100 team will collaborate with Green Acorn to develop “Acorn Nuts”, a frequent customer rewards program that will use punch cards to encourage patronage at certified businesses.
